Come Into the Light

Luca Zingaretti heads the cast of this hard-hitting, multiple award-winning drama, which tells the startling story of Padre Giuseppe ‘Pino’ Puglisi, a priest who served in the tough Brancaccio district of Palermo during the early 1990s. In an act of almost insane courage, Puglisi openly challenged the awesome power of the local Sicilian Mafia, condemning them from the pulpit and reaching out to Brancaccio’s young street kids in an attempt to steer them away from a life of Mob-related crime. It was a stance that made Puglisi an inevitable target for death – but which also paved his way towards immortality and beatification.
